Garage Flooring

Recently I've been hearing of people painting their garage floors with a roll-on rubberized type paint. By the sound of it, it seems almost like Line-X but it is made specifically for garage floors. Does anyone have any experience with any products like this? If so, how did the application go and what do you think of it? And if not, what have you done with your garage floors?

I was interested in doing this to my garage but found out that summer is NOT the best time to do it and it is supposed to be left untouched for several days after it is applied. Any info?

I don't have any personal experience with my garage floor, but I saw my buddies floor after it was done. The most important thing is cleaning any & all oil spots up completely before applying the coating. (He didn't clean his thouroughly cuz he was in a hurry lol) The concrete can't have any oil residue left in it, or it will bubble in short order. There are chemicals available that etch or clean the oil out down to depth, but I don't know what they are. If you can get the oil out enough to where the crete looks clean & white & doesn't go dark again after a few days, then this should be clean enough to do the application. The application itself is easy & straightforward. The only thing he had trouble with was the color chips that you throw on there to break up the monotony of the single color. They are hard to distribute evenly. Is it worth it? Definitely!! Cleaning up grease & oil spills is easy because it doesn't soak into the crete anymore epoxy flake flooring jacksonville, & sweeping is also easier. Instead of using a broom you can use a 6 foot wide dust mop, & do it in 1/2 the time & no dust in the air that you always get from a broom. If my floor didn't require so much prep work to leech out 10 years of oil spills I'd definitely do mine.
I should have coated my garage floor when it was new: woulda, shoulda, coulda. Now it is stained and I am not confident of cleaning it well enough to use epoxy. What has been your experience with the snap-together tiles? Also comparison between brands. Give me your advice.
